Taxi costs

Could someone please advise me the cost of a taxi from Alicante airport to Quesada please

Quesada

We have paid 45 euros from legal taxis, I think that's around what you would pay for illegal taxis as well

Big bangs

I live in Quesada and every now and then there are massive bangs... sounds like mortar guns they shake the hose they are so loud!
I know they have festivals here but these bangs don't coincide with festivals! Any ideas what the bangs are and why they do it? It's like dynamite going off

Quesada

Hi.

Just to let everyone know that we actually bought our property in Quesada through A Spanish Life a few years ago.
We had heard of many horror stories where disreputable people calling themselves estate agents taking advantage of people like myself which made us very wary indeed, but happy to say everything went through very smoothly and love living in Spain!!

Thanks again ASL.

Commented niamcult in Quesada 2018-03-13 16:42:27 UTC

We found our villa via an estate agent on here tbh... and we actually bought the first house we found... after looking at a lot more we came back to the first one we saw... still here now 13 years later

Where best to eat

I have not eaten out in the area for a long time now, and there seems to be a lot of new places to dine out in.
Can anyone let me know where to go or even where not. We will eat any style of food its just got to be good.

Quesada

There is a place by the golf course above the supermarket, can not remember the name but it’s got my vote, we try to eat there every time we are in Quesada.
It’s chinese and it’s the best I ever had, and when it comes to paying the bill it never comes to more than about £9 each.

Commented Papillon in La Marina 2018-03-12 17:37:01 UTC

It's called Maritaos can't speak highly enough of this place we can gren take our guests there

Commented steve in Quesada 2018-03-13 11:17:02 UTC

Punjabi Palace for Indian 5 Star rating, Maritaos for Thai/ Chinese 5 Star also both by the golf course. And if you like fish and chips visit Quesada fish and chips on Calle los arcos they are best in the region not just Quesada

Land at Dona Pepa

What's going on with this land behind Lidl all the way down to Consum. There's somebody parked in a car on one portion that's been fenced off. Different cars and people but been there every time we pass over the last 12 months?

Quesada

I think the people there a guarding it for some reason

Mis-sold Spanish Mortgages

Ok I have been reading loads about what is being called a FLOOR CLAUSE and that tens of thousands of expats have got one on there mortgage and if they have they can get thousands back in compensation.

All sounds GREAT

Before I start filling in forms on line and giving out my personal details can someone PLEASE explain what its all about ?


It's a very simple process as we are getting our money back even after our bank told us we could not.
This is who we are using and they couldnt be more helpful http://theclaimshop.com I was also dubious about form filling so I used their fast track text service to which I though I would call the number instead of texting. I got through to a very nice lady who took all my details over the phone and the following day we completed the process

Simon Ward

Sad news to hear that Simon Ward of Sunseekers
in Quesada has passed away.
Our condolences to his two children.

We knew of Simon but not that well.
He was known to be a bit of a scoundrel from what we heard.
Rest in peace

Sourcing Craft Supplies

Hi Folks,
can anybody help?
Trying to source Craft supplies and I am struggling lol.
Looking for good quality card, around 250 to 300 grams in weight, glues inc modge podge, spray glues, glitter glues and glitter varnish, stamps and inks...
Maybe a brick and mortar shop does not exist?
Unfortunately buying online is either exorbitantly expensive for shipping or prohibited.
any info greatly appreciated :)
Thanks
Sofia.

Quesada

Hiya. My wife and I love making unique gift ware more of a hobby really, but we have the same problem in finding a shop where we can buy our materials. We have to source from the UK as Spain is so backward when it comes to arts and crafts, unless anyone can tell us otherwise! Good luck in finding a shop.
Regards.

Commented virgobob7 in Comunidad Valenciana 2016-09-27 11:29:37 UTC

COMING SOON.....ASL ONLINE SHOPS.
We are currently in production in creating online shops within the ASL group. The shops will be offered to people that create all sorts of unique gift ware. No mass produced items will be permitted as the shops are dedicated totally for the Arts and Crafts and unique gift ware industry with no listing fees or commission charges. For general inquiries and further information, please contact admin@aspanishlife.com

Is your shops just going to be for resedence of Spain? We have a shop with Etsy at the moment, been with them for years but it's changed so much now and not for the good so we are looking for something new, will email soon.

Commented Bob & June Hampton in Quesada 2016-09-27 15:08:12 UTC

Hi Bob & June

My wife and I used to love making hand made items and we still do! But had a very similar experience that you guys had. Years ago ETSY was very good and we were fairly successful in selling our products, but like everything things changed and now it is a multi million pound enterprise that allows mass produced items.

I truly hope you are listening ASL to what we are saying. We think you have hit on a brilliant idea to include online shops to your site and if you keep it to just hand made unique crafts, then you have our support 100%

Commented virgobob7 in Comunidad Valenciana 2016-09-27 17:40:00 UTC

Sounds very interesting!
Have lots of questions so have sent you an email.
Look forward to your reply:)
Sofia.

Commented sofiawella in Quesada 2016-09-28 09:16:49 UTC

Dear June and Bob

Thanks for your comments. Just to answer your question. ASL is predominantly visited by European Countries with the U.K. being number one, but saying that we are now seeing visitors from the USA!
A lady called Jan, who has over 10 years experience in the hand made craft industry, also being a Director of ASL is heading this department and her wealth of knowledge and experience will undoubtedly be a great asset.
We will keep you posted on developments.

Commented Support in Alicante 2016-09-28 12:36:21 UTC

There used to be a craft shop at San Luis in Torrevieja called Kates. She had a large selection of supplies, well worth a visit.

dying in spain

I found my neighbour dead last week after a call from his daughter asking me to check on him. a nice guy from Holland in his 80's we had a few calls over the months from his daughter and we didn't mind checking on him... but the point of this is simple... why do family leave an old man on his own in a villa in spain knowing he is not well? you tell me... when I called the cops and ambulance I got a grilling... not to bad but I had to be there for him... anyway he got cremated within 48 hours... the family said thank you steve and that was that. off they went... heartless

Quesada

That is so sad, and well done you. I hope when my time comes I have everyone around me.
